breaking down the look

in my opinion, new year's eve style is all about the glitz and the glam—without taking it too far, of course. i doubled up on metallics by layering this silver tee with a matching velvet blazer. it's definitely an eye-catcher, but i think the darker tone and texture of the jacket lighten up the impact of the shirt to make it a cool fashion statement. i've also been obsessed with pinstripes lately, so these trousers were perfect and they slipped over the boots just right.

have a happy (and stylish) new year. 🎉
